NFL Browns Express Excitement Over New Radio Deal

Jim Donovan
Excitement reigned as the Cleveland Browns announced their new radio partnership with 92.3 The Fan, ESPN 850 WKNR and 98.5 WNCX at the Cleveland Browns’ Berea training facility on Thursday.

Beginning in the 2013 season, the Browns will have a “triplecast” of their games on three local radios through a partnership with 92.3 The Fan, WKNR and WNCX.

According to Matt Florjancic at,  the partnership will allow the Browns to have more than 1,000 hours of radio programming throughout the entire year, more than double what the team had during the 2012 season.

“I’m very excited about it,” said Jim Donovan, the radio voice of the Browns since 1999. “It’s a very unique deal, really, the first of its kind in the NFL to have three stations covering the Cleveland Browns. It’s really a testament to the appetite and how big it is for Browns fans to get coverage of their football team.

“It’s 24 hours a day, 12 months a year, seven days a week, so the more, the merrier. It carries on a tremendous tradition of the Browns and radio. It’s such a precious thing in the town, the coverage of the football team, that I’m excited for the stations. I hope they’re excited to be a part of the Browns’ family.”

The radio deal will kick off in time for the 2013 NFL Draft, which starts Thursday, April 25, and goes through Saturday, April 27.

Between the three stations, the Browns will have nine daily/weekly radio shows, as compared to one each for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the NBA and Cleveland Indians of Major League Baseball.
